    Change Taptan = No match winning performance, no leading from the front, no Charisma to inspire the team, never saw any captain shouting on field more then him (not a trait of professional).

    I think our team isn't bad, just need to play consistent cricket. I think we should invest in Asif Ali, don't think we have any player who hits the ball bigger than him. Sharjeel khan could play as an opener , his bans lifted.

    Kya zamana aa gaya hai!! There was a time when Pakistan would just go out there and play/win. Now they need to plan strategies and tactics.

    Like Australian , take cricket as 8 to 5 job. They practice whole year. They are in ground everyday. They have sessions to overcome the game issues. Our players showed up 15 days before the game and look at there diet plan. Biryani and Qurama and karai ghost etc. They need whole fitness plan.
    Do you think this fat guy can do anything for this team. He himself is not fit to run few yards...

    Bad fielding and passive captaincy. Instead of going for the kill, Sarfraz preferred a more passive approach resulting in extremely negative RR.

    Learn to field
    Learn to run
    Learn to catch the stupid ball , dropped catches cost us against Australia and New Zealand

    Always the same , just watch the ball pass by and shrug your shoulders to the bowler I’ve been watching the same for years

    India are good at chasing balls but to us it’s like it’s below us or just can’t be bothered .

    Sarfaraz doesnt deserve to be in the team... He is as bad a keeper as kamran akmal was but scores less runs rhan kamran even. We need a gud keeper who can bat decently as well.
    2.
    Shoaib malik needs to go...
    3.
    Wahab riaz needs to go too.
    4.
    Hafeez is a dicy choice... But it won't hurt to keep him.
    5.
    Fakhar and imam are both not dependable. They need a challenge for their positions as both are either stubborn to learn from their mistakes or are self centered person.

    disagree,
    1) he is captain in all 3 format
    2) the result of his captaincy , 2 ICC trophy for Pak (CT and U19), no.1 position of Pak in T20 cricket at the moment
    3) no vice captain in Pak team now, changing captain will do no good, Sarfraz was vice captain when Azhar Ali was captain (who didnt play an ODI for a year before he was named captain out of nowhere)
    4) the amount of politics in PCB so im not sure if Sarfraz is at total fault in his decisions sometime
    5) He and Rizwan are the only wicket keepers in Pak national team, and so his role as wicket keeper or even as player would be gone if they remove him as captain

    IMO he should be given chance with better management, he is still at the age where he can lead the team to the next WC, but he should definitely improve and show his batting more often

    Actually, the Pak team hasnt played badly at all. They had only two poor - outings- a scrappy win over AFG and a loss to WI- the latter costing them qualification. They lost two more- IND & OZ- both of whom are among the best teams anyway; and they beat ENG & NZ.

    Talk about individual performance? What was his role? tell us about his match winning knocks which inspired whole team in those tournaments (U19 and CT)? what is his captaincy except shouting and making shitty faces all the day? What was his performance in Asia Cup and CW19?

    We need a consistent performer as captain who can demand performance from players with straight face, no need to pretend that there is only Sarfaraz and no other person is eligible to be captain, if its true then we are already fvcked up.

    Rizwan is much better Keeper batsman. He scored 2 centuries against Australia in UAE tour? how many your joker taptaan did in CT or WC19? he is in the team only bcoz of his captaincy, if we measure his individual performance, he would have not been allowed near PAk team.

    At time almost all teams were just go and play. I remember it was in early 2000s that Australia started the trend of actually planning and making a detailed strategy for each team, every match. Up until then it was just a game!

    And who should be next Captain? I am not sure if Araon Finch will agree to captain Pakistan. What are your options?

    Spot on!

    He is a selector, not a coach or trainer!

    However he should be removed as selector anyway, just not because he cannot run a few yard!!

    FROM? With current dollar exchange hike i am not sure if importing one will be viable!!

    Agreed! He have served us for years, need to retire!

    Agreed, he have served us for years, need to retire.

    Find a batsman who can plan at either number 4 or number 6 and can ball a bit, there are a few in our domestic circuit. Its time for him to retire, he have served us and should leave now.

    100% agreed. They are suffering UmarShahzad Syndrome! Thinking they are huge stars while there are years of consistent performance required to be one. Both need some spanking! They are excellent choice on paper. One an aggressive player who will play aerial shots. Who if clicks will take it to 100 in 16 overs or beyond.
    Other a relatively stable player who likes to play it along the ground. Who guarantee you 40-50 runs each match and ensure that if the partner have clicked the total will be around 100 in 16-17 overs and he have failed at least this guy will form a partnership with your one-down player. They both have that approach but they both have FAILED to to any of this!! If they cannot do it we need to find two guys who can partner like this. Every good opening pair have same attributes.

    Rain in SL match was a factor and very poor fielding by asif ali in Aus match was a factor as well. Luck was not on our side this time otherwise Team played quite good
